Dienhart: Snap reactions to afternoon games

It was a busy afternoon of Big Ten football action, with six games during the middle block. The results weren’t exactly what the Big Ten had hoped for, either, as it went 3-3 after opening the day 2-1 in the early games. Read my snap reactions to the afternoon games in this post. Live on BTN/BTN2Go: Northwestern vs. Vanderbilt. Also live: Nebraska vs. UCLA. And at 10:30 p.m. ET, it’s Illinois vs. Arizona State. Michigan State 41, Central Michigan 7 1. Much was made of the inconsistent effort of Spartan receivers in the opening win over Boise State. Well, the

ND edges Purdue on last-minute field goal

Tommy Rees came off the bench to lead Notre Dame on a last-minute, winning drive Saturday as the No. 22 Irish got a 27-yard field goal from Kyle Brindza with seven seconds to go and beat Purdue 20-17. Rees, who was suspended for the opener after he was involved in a skirmish with police at a party in May, relieved starter Everett Golson late in the fourth quarter. Purdue (1-1) had tied the game at 17-17 when Caleb TerBush threw a 15-yard TD pass to Antavian Edison with 2:12 left, the score set up by Josh Johnson’s recovery of a

Big Ten Classics: Watch Purdue vs. ND from 1968

This weekend Purdue travels to Notre Dame to play the Fighting Irish for the 84th time. Notre Dame currently leads the series 55-26-2, but the Boilermakers won an absolute classic game in South Bend back in 1968. In what will be an occasional series of Big Ten Classics on BTN2Go, we’ve gone into the archives to recover the telecast of the entire 1968 game. The full game is posted on BTN2Go, but we’ve clipped a portion of it here for you to enjoy. Purdue entered the season ranked No. 1 in the AP Poll. The game featured Purdue quarterback Mike

Revsine's Numbers: Week 2 figures to be intriguing

While there’s always a certain excitement surrounding opening weekend, last week’s slate in the Big Ten left quite a bit to be desired. Outside of Michigan’s match-up with Alabama and Michigan State’s battle with Boise State, very few of the games elicited much in the way of excitement. That is far from the case in Week 2, where I’d venture to say as many as eight or nine games carry a fairly significant level of intrigue. From where I sit, the Purdue-Notre Dame battle is the most interesting one on the slate. As we’ve attended Purdue practices over the last

Purdue to honor late Neil Armstrong with helmet decal

Purdue produced Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, so it’s only appropriate the school honors the late astronaut. Starting Saturday afternoon at Notre Dame, the football team will wear an Armstrong helmet decal on the back of its lids. The sticker, which features an astronaut holding a Purdue flag inside of text that includes Armstrong’s surname and years of birth and death, will sit atop the American flag on Purdue’s helmet. [AP: Purdue to honor Neil Armstrong on helmets] Armstrong, who died on Aug. 25, graduated from Purdue in 1955. [Related: Tom Dienhart’s Q&A with Purdue’s
